This novel boasts a strong and likable heroine and a great setting. The story is told from multiple points of view and switches between past and present. The scenes in the heroine’s voice are very good, but the male’s point-of-view scenes don’t resonate as well. The shifts occur every few pages, making the story feel a bit disjointed. Furthermore, the characters remain too caught up in the dynamics of their teenage love triangle.

Coffee shop owner and single mother Thea Celik is still processing her divorce when her high school sweetheart — and her ex-husband’s brother — Garrett Sorenson, moves back into town. Garrett sees the divorce as an opportunity to reunite with the family that he has been estranged from since his brother and Thea were married. However, when he and Thea meet again, they discover that they still have strong feelings for each other. (BERKLEY, Apr., 368 pp., $15.00)
